"Why do they do it like that?"

Because the people who remember to go through all the hoops to claim the money back amount to around 30% of those that could.

You must follow the instructions to the letter to make a sucessful claim.

thanks again

Don't forget that if a company ceases trading you 'lose' your cashback, but still have your contract.

I have got significant amounts of cashback from Carphone Warehouse on two contracts so far (I have had over £300 and am due another £200 over the next 6 months) and have found them very straightforward and pretty helpful.

I also know people who have found it very difficult to get their cashback from other suppliers.

Try click here and look for 'Duckmagic's mobile phone thread.

He often posts excellent mobile deals. In addition use quidco for additioal cash back, which can be quite high on phones.

It is not impossible to often actually make a profit on the deals!
